Dog Walking Franchise

The Dog Walking Industry is growing in popularity – With more people than ever wanting to hire a dog walker for various reasons. There are many new dog walking companies popping up throughout the UK however with an established brand like Playful Pups you would stand out from the crowd.

Playful Pups was originally set up in Essex and has Franchisees all over the UK. You would be purchasing the Peterborough Franchise with the exclusive rights to operate in the area shown in the images. This area is MASSIVE and offers plenty of room for growth. Playful Pups Peterborough was established in 2016 and has a well known reputation in the local area. This reputation was built by providing an excellent, reliable service and a reasonable price.

This business is currently not in operation, however this has nothing to do with the current ‘situation’. I decided to close for personal reasons. The business ceased its services in April 2020 at the end of the 19/20 tax year (so it has only recently closed) At the point of its closure the business was profitable and at the end of the 19/20 tax year turned over 23k with 15k profit.

The business operated for 5 hours per day Mon-Fri and provided a dog walking service. However what you do with your business is up to you. Walking? Boarding? Grooming? Training? As long as its dog related you can do what you like!
